It's hard to believe that a gorgeous and successful woman like Claudia Schiffer would be a shy girl?! Oh so true!
Claudia made her first ever UK interview with Jonathan Ross last Friday night, to talk about the launch of her new haircare range - Schwarzkopf Essence ULTÎME and Schwarzkopf Blonde ULTÎME, the two new hair cosmetics brands by Schwarzkopf. The ranges have been exclusively developed with Claudia Schiffer.
She looked fabulous in a silver-grey bodycon dress, teamed with black leggings and sky-high black boots! And yet the interview started with just how shy she is, and the anxiety she has should she be in a room with more than six or eight people. Which is one of the reasons she loves modelling, as the make-up and clothes are like a guard for her, they allow her to be someone else.
Jonathan joked with Claudia that she always looked amazing on her school runs! The 43 year old, mother of three replied that she had competition in the morning, as "all mothers look good on the school run"…?????! - I wonder just how many mothers reading this have taken their kids to school still wearing pyjamas or haven't had time to shower or put a brush though their hair!!

I'd love to look like this on any day - let alone on the school run!
Back to the hair products, these include shampoos, conditioners, masks, oils and balms each catered towards one of four key concerns - volume, colour protection, shine and repair.
You can read more about her new hair care range here - and stockists include most of the major supermarkets along with Superdrug and Boots Chemist.

The trench coat is a staple item in every women's wardrobe, but this season you will find a whole new take on it with lots of different fabrics, like rubber, suede or as you will see all over Top Shop - PVC!
With less structure and more of a sporty-urban look, you can have a lot of fun dressing this one up or down. Here are a few that I'm loving…

Officer's Long Coat
Inspired by military-regiment styles, this sleek, long coat is made from cotton twill and accented with ornate gold-toned braiding and buttons.

Here are my top three favourite products that are helping fight the battle this winter…
I'm so in love with Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Skin Protectant. I take this everywhere with me. I use it daily on my lips to protect from the harsh ailments of the weather, but you can use for lots of other things, like taming your eyebrows! I usually pick mine up on Duty Free, but all good department stores will have it.
Top tip - in the summer when you may accidentally burn your nose or ears, put this on before going to bed and then in the morning it's so much calmer and far less red!
Another favourite of mine is from the ARK skincare range - and it's their Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer.
I know this product is working on me, as I have freckles on my checks and nose, and when the sun is out so are my freckles!! Since using this product my freckles are minimised and it acts as a supportive base to apply my tinted moisturiser or foundation too, which allows it to last a lot longer.
Put it this way, I know when I'm not wearing it!! £36 from ARK Skincare
And finally, for your hair, Moroccan Oil - this one is not a protector but it adds moisture back into your hair. There is a lighter version for people who have fine hair - this product is helping my hair fight the battle of looking tired and dry - again, I know when I'm not using it!
Just add a drop to your hair before adding your styling products - it leaves your hair soft and moisturised - great for mid to long hair! I purchased mine via my hair salon - check yours on your next visit.

The Conversation are running a social media campaign for woman in the month of February - many women find this month very difficult as Valentines Day can be quite an upsetting day.
So they are turning things round this year, it's not about who you love or who loves you...it's about loving yourself!!
The Conversation would love for you and your girlfriends to either Facebook, Tweet or Instagram what things you love doing for yourself, your own YOU time. Simply hashtag your post with #loveselfie and add images too - describing what you love to do.
Here was mine:
